  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jan, 2016- Mar, 2016

There’s an old saying out there in romance, a way to a man is through his stomach. Though maybe Iori Wakabayashi is going about this old saying in the wrong way. Iori currently is infatuated with her boss Habahiro Hige but he way of making him notice is through teasing him with his biggest weakness, Tabekko Marshmallows. Iori thinks Hige will fall for her if she keeps pushing his buttons. However, will this tactic work or will Iori find her job terminated?

Iori, in many ways, reminds us of Akira Tachibana from Koi wa Ameagari no You ni. Not only does Iori do things her own way in Ojisan to Marshmallow, but she pretty aggressive in her attempts at wooing her love. Ojisan to Marshmallow is another romance anime with some rather silly themes all while being quite cute and adorable. We can feel it now, you’re wondering if Iori wins over Hige’s big heart. Well, we here at Honey’s Anime won’t spoil it for you; you’ll just need to watch Ojisan to Marshmallow for yourself.

4. Kimi ni Todoke (Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You)

  • Episodes: 25
  • Aired: Oct, 2009- Mar, 2010

One look at Kuronuma Sawako might scare most people away. Looking similar to a popular ghost girl from The Ring, Sawako has been avoided by her classmates for having a scary demeanor and odd behavior. However, Sawako isn’t doing this on purpose and wishes to just have friends to talk with and a normal school life. Then when popular guy Shouta begins talking to Sawako, things finally seem to change for this awkward girl. Kuronuma Sawako might finally make some friends and even maybe have a love life, if she can find a way to stop doing rather odd things.

Here at Honey’s Anime, we know that any romance anime list needs a few good shoujo anime on it. That’s why we think for those who love Koi wa Ameagari no You ni you will most certainly love Kimi ni Todoke. While Akira Tachibana’s awkwardness might not be nearly as bad as Sawako, these two at times mirror each other in their love lives. Sawako is clearly trying to make her relationship with Shouta work and similarly, Tachibana is as well. That’s why we can honestly say Kimi ni Todoke is a perfect anime to recommend for our 6 Anime Like Koi wa Ameagari no You ni list. Plus, when you’re finished with the first 25 episodes, there’s another season of Kimi ni Todoke meaning you won’t have to wait to see how Sawako’s life turns out. Not like how we have to wait for Koi wa Ameagari no You ni to finish airing…which is slowly killing us!

5. Lovely Complex

  • Episodes: 24
  • Aired: Apr, 2007- Sept, 2007

Both Koizumi Risa and Ootani Atsushi are in rather strange predicaments. Not only do the two have rather strange heights for their genders but their crushes are actually dating each other! Struggling with their romance lives together both Atsushi and Risa have begun to get to know one another better. Maybe, love can form between these two…if they don’t anger and annoy each other first. It’s time for a rather comedic romance struggle in Lovely Complex!

Both Lovely Complex and Koi wa Ameagari no You ni are quite similar and it doesn’t take too long to realize why. In Lovely Complex, a tall girl and a short guy are beginning their road to romance. Meanwhile, in Koi wa Ameagari no You ni a 45 year old is trying to deal with a 17 year old girl who seems to love him. That’s why Lovely Complex is a perfect anime to binge if you are in dire need of some comedy with your romance tale. These romances are indeed rather strange but you can’t say they aren’t both interesting.

6. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jul, 2014-Sept, 2014

What do you usually expect when you go up to the guy of your dreams and confess to them? Usually, you’d expect a comment back or some form of normal acknowledgement. However, that isn’t the case for high school girl Chiyo Sakura who has just confessed to Umetarou Nozaki. Instead of hearing a confirmation of her feelings, Chiyo instead gets an autograph and then learns something interesting; Nozaki is actually a popular shoujo mangaka! Making matters even stranger, following more attempts by Chiyo to make Nozaki notice her, she ends up becoming his assistance! Can Chiyo get Nozaki to notice her?!

As we mentioned earlier, love isn’t an easy battle. You see this in Koi wa Ameagari no You ni and you also see it in our last recommendation for our 6 Anime Like Koi wa Ameagari no You ni list in the anime known as Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. Similarly to Akira, Chiyo must prove to her love that she’s there and even more so, prove her confessions aren’t that of a crazed fan! Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun will make you laugh non-stop while watching—usually at the expense of Chiyo—but the romance element will also be quite solid. We can’t recommend Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun any harder if you really are digging Koi wa Ameagari no You ni like we are.
